Taekwondo Olympian Ahmad Abu Ghaush is reaching top form ahead of his Rio Games bid after winning gold in the highly competitive Korea Open Championship.
It is the first time a Jordanian has won a medal at the tournament, and Abu Ghaush did it in style by winning six matches and the gold medal. He defeated the host nation’s Kem Gee Web on a golden point in the final.
He will now head to Manchester, England, for a training camp until July 23 involving athletes from South Korea, Spain, Mali and Britain.
Joining the taekwondo star in Korea were Chen Chua Huwa, technical manager; Faris Al Assaf, Olympic Coach; Ashraf Saqer, physiotherapist; and Anas Al Adarbeh, athlete.
